Volvo is recalling 3,635 2007-2010 Volvo S80 for failing to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 110, "tire selection and rims."
Apparently the "Tire and Loading Information" label on the driver door frame, the associated page in the Owner's Manual and the software for the Tire Pressure Monitoring System all contain an incorrect maximum tire inflation specification, which could lead to improper tire inflation and a possible incorrect TPMS warning light.
For S80 with the V-6 powertrain, the owner's manual, the loading information label on the doorjamb and the monitoring system set a maximum tire pressure of 35 pounds per square inch, instead of 36 psi. Also in some V-8 model the maximum tire pressure is 36 psi instead of the correct 38 psi maximum.
According to Volvo, no complaint was registered, but instead was discovered by the company's own engineers. Properly inflated tires are vitally important to your safety. Improper pressure will compromise cornering, braking and stability limits. The tire could also fail completely, causing a serious accident. Incorrect tire pressure can also diminish the vehicle's expected fuel economy.
Volvo dealers will update the vehicle software, the loading information label and the owner's manual information for free under NHTSA Recall ID No. 10V335000. A schedule for the repairs hasn't been announced yet.
